Morphological and Physiological Properties of Motor Neurons Innervating Insect Leg Muscles
In this chapter, we shall first review progress in identifying the patterns of innervation in the muscles of the walking legs of locusts and cockroaches. Second, we shall review recent work on the structure of insect motor neurons (MNs) and describe some of our own unpublished data on the structure of cockroach MNs. Finally, we shall discuss recent studies on the physiological relationships between MNs and their afferent input.
